Do you people think that a non-native english speaker can acquire the amrerican accent after living in the states for a while . Have you ever met such a person.

Yes, many, but they moved here as kids.

but what about people who move to the states at the age of 20-22 is it possible for them speak amirecan accent fluently just as native speakers.

Individuals vary, but most adults will find that their native accent will always be present to some small degree. However, as long as they are fluent in their speaking style, a slight accent should make no difference to their listeners.
